Crossover Youth Basketball
Crossover Youth Basketball started in 1987 uniting the young basketball players in our community with one another, caring coaches, and the local church. This is a recreational ministry – which is also one of the largest youth organizations partnering with the NBA’s Junior Warriors program and Redwood Christian Schools. Our program is designed to provide a fun and safe activity for the youth in our community.
The goal of Crossover is to create healthy competition and build biblical character within its participants. Each participant will receive a uniform and a player devotional booklet with weekly “Crossoverse” Bible verses to study and memorize. This co-ed ministry runs from November through mid-February. There are five divisions that are separated by grades 2 nd /3 rd , 4 th /5 th , 6 th /7 th , 8 th /9 th , and 10 th -12 th . It is an opportunity for boys and girls to learn about God, have fun, play basketball, and demonstrate teamwork skills. One hour practices are held once per week (beginning in November) and games are only played on Saturdays (beginning in December).
Our name, Crossover, has a special meaning. It is an important and basic basketball move, which involves a change of direction, from one side to the other. It also reminds us that spiritually we can “cross-over” from death to life through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Registration for the 2019-20 Crossover season opens August 1 st and is first come, first served.
